A gem for embellishing, the Vivian hat pattern is easy to knit in spite of its fully shaped appearance. A double strand of worsted weight is used throughout the project and the magic is in precise blocking. Full the hat in the washing machine to fit the head size you are after and be sure to study my blocking notes under the "Techniques" tab on my website home page.
Vivian is my signature design, named for my grandmother. Please view the slide show for embellishment ideas here.
